Blooms on Basket is rather extra ordinary way to progress your Sculpture palette knife painting skills. The approach of doing the basket weave on this cake project is surely going to be an excellent addition to your do-me-a-basket collection. The Roses and Anemones painting can be a little complex but Valeri will give you a comprehensive explanation on how to properly achieve them so you will not need to worry.

In the following tutorial, you will learn how to…

  •  Cover your cake with a little bit of rustic look
  • Create a unique basketweave pattern
  • Correctly hold your palette knife to be able to achieve palette knife painted designs
  • Achieve stunning colours using your Swiss meringue or Italian meringue
  • and lots, lots more
